Colonial Massachusetts. The best way to learn about it is to "live" there! Your children will join young Nathan and Sarah Mayhew on their farm in 1732. Education becomes hands-on fun as kids "do as the colonists do" in year-round activities such as making a model weathervane, baking bread, dipping candles, and playing Jackstraws. Over 40 projects! Ages 8 to 12. 112 pages, softcover from Jossey-Bass.
DAVID C. KING has written many books for children and young adults, including Pioneer Days (Wiley), First Facts about American Heroes, America's Story, and The Heroic Age of American Invention. He has worked as a curriculum developer in both history and social studies, and as a high school English and history teacher.
The variety and number of projects give ample possibilities for finding ideas that fit your children's interests and suit your level of hands-on experience. (EclecticHomeschool.org, 06/03/2008)
